12:51am
it's a nice place to be. so, yeah, it's a big part of my life, it's a big part of their life. a big part of their lives. >> the walls of the gym are lined with hall of fame career memories. but 2012 has been undeniably difficult. not only pacquiao's loss to bradley in june, but defeats of his other elite fighters. with kah subsequently firing roach from his corner. >> it's been a tough year, i'm wondering if i'm losing my touch. i had a run for six years, five years where i only lost three fights in the entire time, now i have lost three in a row.
12:52am
it's not easy. you know, sometimes you can't sleep at night and it bugs me so i know losing is part of life. but i hate to lose. >> december 8th offers the perfect remedy his frustration. >> it will justify everything that i do. you are best known from your last fight. >> i need to do my best. i need to work and work hard to -- and i will not let him down. >> you fall in the pocket, it's safe, he is swenging out here, if you get him in here. in the pocket. beat him up. okay? >> he may have remarked a few days earlier that these training sessions have become about following his fighter's lead. today roach's command of the agenda is apparent, and his veteran student falls in accordingly. >> he is a tricky counter puncher, i think one will be enough. relax, like you are playing. you are picking me, relax. >> good job. i said to myself after i said that, i said, you know what? i got to get back to telling him what to do.
12:53am
i like being the boss. >> a boxing trainer's life requires a firm tolerance for routine. after all these years, naco beristain can hardly do any different. he makes his way back and goes through his tradition.
